Germany and China have reiterated that they are committed to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal following the United States' withdrawal. 
Speaking alongside visiting China's Premier Li Keqiang in Berlin on Monday, Chancellor Angela Merkel said the nuclear accord, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was well-negotiated. 
The Chinese premier also warned against the unforeseeable consequences if the deal falls apart.
